Egg Hunt

Hello Crafty Friends!

Have you had a lovely Easter Sunday?
Hunting for eggs? Or for bargains??

I share with you another card made with
which are on sale for 20% until
midnight of April 5th.

For this card I used:
stamp set: Let's Party.

To make the eggs in the jar, I made my own stencil with this egg
paper punch trough a post it note and used the cutouts to cover
eggs if needed.

For the grass border I used the scenic border stencil.
With the inside of the mason jar I covered the pot
as not to get any grass on it.

The bunny from the Let's Party stamp set is stamped
and embossed with black embossing powder and colored
with stamping blend's markers. The punched out eggs
are from some left over Spring Geometric design paper.

Thank you for looking,
stay safe, keep crafting
and enjoy the eggs!

Love, Peace and coffee

Hello crafty friends,

Even though the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is over,
I had to finish and post this last coffee card.
My little sloth called Zinny ( made by Donna Gray) was
on my desk already colored  and the cup too.
I did not want to trow these away.

So I got my Funky Fossil Designs stencils out and created the 
background for my card.


The  cup stamp is also by Funky Fossil Designs
and colored with pencil. I tried to make it look like
Delft Blue style.

Thank you for looking
And tomorrow something totally different.

Keep safe, keep crafting
and enjoy your coffee.

Coffee lovers Blog Hop - Day 8

Hello coffee loving crafty friends!
Here we are on the last day of the 
This time I have a project:
a Coffee Clutch:
Inside this clutch there is a surprise!

It happened that I found this in my stash:
So it is a Club Scrap project.
hen i saw this, I had no idea what it was going to be,
so I searched my computer and the Club Scrap website
but could not find instructions. Together with Julie Heyer
from Club Scrap, we foud it was a project from 
Brewed Awakenings and there is even a video tutorial:
I hope this way you can see it too or go HERE
Anyway I had a lot of fun making this.
All materials and stamps I used are by Club Scrap.
Another look at the clutch: decorated with 
a stencil and some cut aparts from my stash too.
The charm on the handle is a few beads, a spoon and a
cup from my stash. The flap of the pouch 
(see also detail below) is done with a coffee bean
embossing folder.

Here a close up of the charm on the handle.

The clutch is closed with magnets that came with the kit.

Voila! here is the inside: many pockets and places for decoration.
This is absolutely a very easy project to make:
a little folding, hardly any glueing and a little sewing
to hold this all together.
Inside each pocket there is a card with a little tab
(that came with the kit) and decoration.
I added some pictures, but you could also add
coffee recipes or quotes.

Tab 2 is a picture of me, that I use very often for
a profile picture. it is from a few years back.
Now my hair is corona long!

This tab is decorated with one of my 
Club Scrap coffee stencils. Maybe I will do 
something on the back too. There is still room to
add more.

In the last openening (the fold of the clutch)
I added a picture of my mom. One of the last times
we had coffee in her own home. She is now in a care home
and the hous is sold. She has dementia.

Thank you for looking and I hope you had as
much fun with all the coffee cards/projects as
I did here on my blog and on the
Thank you Amy Tsuruta, team and sponsors for
making this possible.

Stay safe, keep crafting
and enjoy your coffee.

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day 7

Welcome coffee loving crafty friends,

Have you seen all the wonderful artwork at
And all the fun prizes there are to win?

For my card today I used 
Honey Bee Perfect Blend clear  stamp set

I started out by stamping the word coffee
with versamark and used clear embossing powder.
After spraying the pannel with Kitch Flamingo distress spray
(one of my favorites these days!) and using a piece of paper towel
to rub the words clean, I got this beautiful background.
The cute little beans from the same set are stamped in brown distress oxide ink.

As for the slothy, he is colored with Stampin'Blends
and cut out by hand. I found this lovely metal clock
in one of my drawers waiting to be used!

Thank you for looking!

Stay safe, keep crafting
and enjoy your coffee!
